We finally have a shipping date for both Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, at least according to a new report surfacing from South Korea.
After Samsung’s confirmation that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be unveiled on March 29, there have been different stories regarding the potential release of the phones in different markets across the globe. We’ve seen dates like April 10th, April 16th, April 21st, and recently, we saw April 28th join the party. But according to fresh reports coming in, Samsung will begin taking pre-orders for the phones as from April 10th, which will be less than two weeks after the official launch.
10 days later, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be available for purchase, which will be on April 21. As noted, this date has already appeared before and if anything, the latest report is only adding more weight to the same. Even though the report comes from South Korea, apparently, the said April 21 date is meant for the global release of the phones, but of course, not all markets across the globe will be able to get access to the S8 and S8+ as of this date.
The leaked Samsung Galaxy S8 roadmap starts right from the main launch event, adding that the phone will then be opened for pre-orders on April 7th and close on April 17th, after which availability will start a few days later on April 21st.
We have just two weeks before Samsung unveils the Galaxy S8 and S8+ and so far, a day rarely passes without a new leak or rumor about the phones. In fact, it is because of these leaks that we have just about every detail of the phones’ design aspects, specs as well as features. Like last year, the two phones will be mainly differentiated by their screen sizes, where the S8 will have a 5.8-inch panel while the S8+ will come in with a 6.2-inch screen.
As for the rest of the specs, excluding the battery capacity, everything remains the same. These include a QHD resolution for the screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB RAM and 64GB of expandable memory. So far little is known about the cameras, but we are confident that there’s still no dual-lens setups on the phones.
